Waitati Edible Gardens Tour

Waitati Edible Gardens

Hello and summer welcome to/from all WEGgies. This year is set to be a busy one with the edible gardens tour coming up, to inspire you all into food sovereignty and home growing nutritious-ness.
For those of you who don’t know us and a quick recap for those who do the WEGgie vision is this:
We want to confront the emerging challenges of post peak oil by strengthening our community in the immediate future with an emphasis on food production. As energy availability contracts and Global Storming/Warming pressures become more acute we need to establish local food sovereignty or semi-autonomous food production.
So basically, politrickeral linguistics aside, that means we want to help the community to grow vegetables, in a grass-roots-kind-of-a-way (excuse the pun), to feed ourselves, our families and our greater community. Starting with the Waitati Edible Gardens Tour (see our big ad, book now to avoid disappointment), we will be organising educational/ inspirational/ vegetational events throughout the year, to help you grow your food.
We also aim to start building a big list of who knows what in our community, so if you need a hand, we can put you in touch with the right folk with the right experience, expertise, tools or just time and energy to help you get growing , in a friendly villagy way. Our community is rich is growing power, and we want to link it all up, share strengths and weakness’ and get productive.

SO - Call to the large: All of Yea who are interested/might become interested in growing food/learning how to grow food/ getting better at growing food/ growing more food/ eating home grown food please express your interest so that we can organise things ‘specially for you e.g. community links, specific workshops (no-dig/biodynamics/fruit trees, pruning, bee keeping), working bees, vegetable emergency advice line … TELL US WHAT YOU WANT!
Come on our tour and get on our contacts list by email: misslucyjack@hotmail.com

In the meantime: Happy Christmas and peas to all beans on earth

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>
